Join Us for the Largest Climate Rally in U.S. History
Millions of Americans are already feeling the disastrous effects of the climate crisis in their own lives -- from coastal families hit by monster storms to drought-stricken farmers in the Midwest. Scroll down to RSVP.
It's never been clearer that we need bold, immediate climate leadership. That's why Presidents Day weekend, Sunday, Feb. 17, the Center for Biological Diversity, along with thousands of activists, will head to the White House for the Forward on Climate Rally to tell President Obama to shut down the climate-killing Keystone XL pipeline once and for all.
The last time we stood up against Keystone XL, thousands surrounded the White House -- and it worked. Right when every political and energy "expert" said the tar-sands pipeline was a done deal, we beat the odds and convinced President Obama to take a year to study it.
Now that year is over, and the evidence is clear -- it was the hottest year in American history, we experienced a horrible ongoing drought, and we felt the force of Superstorm Sandy. And still Big Oil is pushing harder than ever for Keystone XL, looking for even more private profit at public expense.
Join us in Washington, D.C., on Presidents Day, February 17, and make Forward on Climate the biggest climate demonstration yet. Use the form below to RSVP.
